Met at the door by friendly owner, Vic, and seated promptly by friendly staff. It took longer for us to choose our food than it did to receive it as the menu looked so good as did the special of the day. Hubby decided on the ribs (Vic doesn't sell his sauce unfortunately as it was THAT good!) and I... More

Ive been here twice as a dinner date and the food was good. We wanted margaritas and they were absolutely terrible! It tasted like frozen ice with no flavor! I never complain about my food but i was so upset about the bad drinks that i told the cashier. She actually agreed and said "yes, we have had complaints and... More

This place prides itself on having locally sourced foods, and so when I ordered a burger, I realistically expected to get a good quality patty, but it was a mass-produced, flavorless patty. Spouse ordered the quiche which was devoid of cheese and flavor. The pecan pie was great though!

On a recent day trip to Port Lavaca, we came across this gem of a restaurant located right on Main Street in downtown Port Lavaca! We decided to stop in for lunch at about 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon. The place was no too busy, but there were about 10 other patrons there. We were immediately greeted very warmly... More

Dinner Late on a Friday night. I was immediately greeted and immediately seated. Ordered a cup of chili as an appetizer with cornbread. Both were good. Ordered flounder for the entre. Hot tea arrived and was good. The light breading on the grilled flounder was appropriate but I did not care for the herb content. The fillet was good but... More

Friends recommended this place and we were not disappointed. Staff was courteous and engaging. The quiche was delicious and the folks enjoyed their barbeque ribs. Salad bar was ample and fresh. Would like to sample dinner before we head north. Did not see any off-street parking, but we had no problem finding a space nearby.

Had the lunch special. Ribs just fell off the bone. Only down was the parking. Has only street parking that we could see. We did lunch and found one easily. Dinner might be different. Food and service was excellent.

We stopped here on our way home from a camping trip and were so pleased with everything. The service was very friendly and efficient, and everything tasted great. While I'm partial to my grandmother's chicken 'n' dumplings, these were a close second, and my husband loved his chicken fried steak. Our kids' favorite was the pecan pie, but we didn't... More

Good restaurants in small towns are hard to find, and, because of limited populations, they often don't survive. We've been taking the 30 minute drive from our bay house to this gem for several years. We have never been disappointed. It's a great lunch place with excellent burgers, and even better for dinner. We're partial to their fried shrimp, but... More
